Late tip-in helps Providence hold off No. 10 Villanova 54-52

No. 10 Villanova is limping into the postseason with a third-string point guard and a bit of a road slump.

David Duke and Nate Watson scored 20 points apiece, and Duke outjumped his taller teammate and four Wildcats to tip in the game-winner with 2.8 seconds left on Saturday as Providence held on after blowing a 20-point lead to beat the Big East champions 54-52.

Although the TV broadcast credited the 6-foot-10 Watson with the tiebreaking putback, the box score said it was Duke, a guard who is five inches shorter. Watson said he wasn't sure - and he didn't much care.
